Cannes Contender Hero Image Wk6

With Cannes Lions starting in just a few days, we are happy to share our final batch of Cannes Contenders: six pieces from our offices in Amsterdam, Brazil, Shanghai, Atlanta, Dubai, and Riyadh.

Among this week’s work, you’ll see some of our best in print, a traditional medium that in today’s digital and tech-obsessed landscape, requires an extra bit of creative finesse. 

Though this is the last batch in our series, it’s not the last you’ll hear from us about Cannes. During the week, you can expect us to be reporting back from the festival with recaps of our wins and some of the best takeaways from this year's events.

As always, please show off your favorites from our Contender series on social media with the hashtag #JWTCannes.
